Evernote Walking Challenge

It´s no secret I love walking. Walking has several physical and mental benefits: reduces stress, controls blood sugar levels, boosts the immune system, burns fat and more.

You can lose body fat and get in shape through walking alone. Often, sedentary people choose intense workouts when they want to get in shape. Big mistake. It’s hard to stick to an intense routine if you’ve been out on the couch for a long time. You need a routine first. Intense routines come later.

It´s no secret I love Evernote, the place to organize your work, declutter your life, and remember everything. As you know, Evernote has endless applications, and I use it to deliver personalized training and meal plans, all over the world,  and easily keep track of my clients´ daily progress.

I´m excited to announce my first fitness challenge on Evernote. This walking challenge will build discipline that will help you stay in shape for the rest of your life. Don’t wait until Monday or next month to start this challenge, start today!

First, you need an Evernote account to share your training notes with me and get advice. Download it here, and make sure to download it to all your devices. No worries, there is a free version of Evernote available. This challenge won´t cost you any money, but if you think Evernote is useful and want a paid version, you´re very welcome.

If you already are an Evernote user, let me know in the comment section.

No matter the activity tracker or app you use, you can save it (and much more) in Evernote with no effort. I´ll show you how to do it.

Once you get your account, I give you access to a notebook where you share your daily walks. I share mine, as well as advice on walking and Evernote. Private chat is available for your questions and concerns about training and how to use Evernote.

Also, an exclusive Facebook group with healthy recipes where you´ll meet more participants in a distended ambient. I think we have it all to reach your goals as you have fun.

This is “The Moment” when you chose a more healthy lifestyle. Download the app and let´s get started!

Foam Roller: Calves Relief

You´ll hear/read foam roller is a self-myofascial technique. Ok, self-myofascial release is the term for self-massage to release muscle tightness or trigger points. By applying pressure to specific points muscles return to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic and ready to perform.

Some of the basic, most obvious benefits are better movement and increased range of motion. These benefits can decrease the chance of injury and decrease recovery time after a workout.

We should start foam rolling our calves. From the shoes we wear to the way we sit in a chair, our calves are suffering most of the time.

I would like to introduce a new style of videos, please click play and be amazed how the letters fall from the sky, haha! No, seriously, I would appreciate your feedback.

Activity trackers

Good morning!

I´ve found my activity tracker! If being offline had something positive, this was it 🙂

I know you all use Fitbit or Apple. I use Withings 🙂 I bought it on 1 September 2014 and it still works. My phone did not last that long :/

Like I´ve said I forgot/lost my activity tracker for quite some time. Yesterday, I relinked it to my new phone, downloaded the app, and even found my 2015 review, with badges and all the stuff 🙂

I think it will be a good mate, looking for a new flat means a lot of walking 🙂

HealthMate

Let me ask, do you walk the infamous 10000 a day?

From the USA to the UK

Hello, dears 🙂

My good friend Cameron, aka The world´s biggest fridge magnet, had some questions for me. Currently, Cameron is training for a charity walk… 170 miles! Do you suffer a lack of motivation? Follow this guy!

What would you do if you were the one survivor in a plane crash?

If you woke up and had 2,000 unread emails and could only answer 300 of them how would you choose which ones to answer?

The answers to these and other funny questions at The Magnet Interviews 🙂
